Breakfast #1:

Why your PMO needs post-heroic leadership

February 22nd - Free Breakfast Seminar
Silversquare - Meeûssquare 35 - 1000 Brussels

Post-heroic PMO leaders will strive to create an environment where project managers can operate autonomously and effectively, while they operate as the cornerstone of the organization. The conductor of an orchestra doesn’t play an instrument but is nonetheless vital for a good performance. When you implement post-heroic leadership principles for your PMO you create a sense of unity with the most important stakeholders of your organization.

In this breakfast session we’ll guide you through the main elements of post-heroic leadership for PMOs. Together with Christophe Vandecaveye (guest speaker) we dive deeper into this subject, learning how to keep the heart of your PMO beating, how to attain the ultimate PMO that eases the work of PMs, gains trust, translates a vision into results and identifies the right project management talent.

Breakfast #2:

Agile Project Management: myths and reality

March 22nd  - Luxembourg - Free Breakfast Seminar
Restaurant Namur, 2 Rue de Bitbourg, 1273 Luxembourg

In today’s Project Management world, “Agile” is more than just a buzzword: it is often perceived as the solution to all our problems. However, “Agile” is a concept and there are unlimited ways to deploy it in an organisation; and not all of them deliver the expected benefits.

Join us at our breakfast session and we will discuss together with our guest speakers about the dividing line between the myths and the reality of “Agile”. You will discover what works and what doesn't, how to be agile to get the maximum value for your organisation and how to deploy it in order to be as effective as possible.

Guest Speaker

Riccardo Brizzi Global Head of Delivery at Finastra (formerly Misys) “The Flavors of Agile” – Riccardo will explain how working with clients who claim to be “Agile” is not always easy. He will share lessons learned from multiple global engagements.

Breakfast #3:

The war for talent or how to retain and develop your PM Talent

April 19th - Rotterdam - Free Breakfast Seminar
Vessel 11 - Wijnhaven 101, 3011 WN Rotterdam

Projects and programs are the core of any organization’s strategic initiatives – they are how change happens. It’s clear that delivering successfully those organization’s initiatives is a team effort. Having the right talent to implement those projects and programs smoothly is the critical capability that gives organizations a competitive advantage to navigate through necessary change. The right people with the right skills and competences ensure that your projects and programs get realized.

Developing a strategic PM talent management approach – on organizational and individual level – remains a challenge for many HR managers.

Breakfast #4:

Your ERP transformation project: Highway to Hell or Stairway to Heaven?

April 26th - Kortrijk - Free Breakfast Seminar
Parkhotel - Stationsplein 2 - 8500 Kortrijk

April 26th  - Kortrijk - Free Breakfast Seminar

The introduction of a new ERP platform in your organization does not only entail the installation and configuration of the selected software system. Such an initiative usually leads to a transformation of certain business processes and impacts the existing way of thinking, reporting and analysis. In too many cases insufficient attention is paid to the guidance of that transformation. This leads to a project that is not under control, an organization that struggles to follow and a management team that is disillusioned.

Approaching this transformation in a structured and holistic way makes the difference between a “Highway to Hell” or a “Stairway to Heaven” ERP project. In this breakfast session we will share our best practices to help you avoid common mistakes and to ensure your organization of a successful ERP transformation.
